From a population of just over 4 million, 324,000 Australian men served overseas in WW1. Some 61,700 never came home.From a population of just over 4 million, 324,000 Australian men served overseas in WW1. Some 61,700 never came home. Australia suffered the highest casualty rate in the British Empire forces. And every single one of them was a volunteer.
There are so many First World War Memorials in this country that it is easy to stop seeing them. They have become so much a part of the landscape that you can walk past them without registering what they are, or stopping to think why they were originally put up. It is only when you start looking out for them that you realize the scale of this act of commemoration.
Thousands of memorials to the dead represent a massive and unprecedented outpouring of national grief.
